    And it still works :) I was really surprised when I pressed the Menu button and front row came up.

    It's a rather simple piece of hardware. It should be safe once it dries. Which it is. :rolleyes:

    I'm still using a USB flash drive that's gone through the washer/dryer, and it's still more reliable than others I've bought since :p

    Good to know that the Apple Remote's tough enough for that though.

    I use to do it on my wired apple keyboard to clean it. the dishwasher works great! Just let it dry for a day and it looks as good as new.
